How many times have we seen a headline like this on an information product? Probably more than we can count…
However, most of us deep down don’t really care about being rich, I can’t say for myself or any of my closest friends we have a love affair with money, sure maybe once it would be fun to get a few thousand in cash throw it out on the bed and roll around in it while belting out an evil laugh “Muhahahahaha” but that would only be fun once 🙂
But let’s dig a little deeper, although it will be nice being able to have great things what most of us are really striving for is money so we can help those around us, maybe it’s been your hard working parents dream their whole life to have a beach house and retire to soak in the sun and go fishing every day, yet we know given some of the current economic situations that may never happen for a lot of them – which is where you having money comes in.
If you have children I could think of no better joy then being able to provide them with the life an opportunities you may not have been provided with – No, I don’t believe children should be spoiled constantly and given everything on a silver platter, but if you can provide them the opportunities and educate them at a young age then think of how they can change the world for the better.
So, this leads us back to money, you really do need it to accomplish a lot of the grand ideas and plans you may have, but maybe that seems easier said than done. With so many get rich quick information products and systems out there its easy to get lost in the shuffle and really end up just going in circles spending more than you ever make back.
Money is not the goal, nor is it something to really strive for – Money is primarily a metric, a means to measure the progress of your success in that area of you life.
Let’s resolve to make a plan:
My thought to you is start thinking today what you want the future to look like 5 and 10 years down the road, vision it out in pain staking detail, even get out your journal (you have a journal right?) and write down your vision. I personally like to write mine as a story from the minuet I wake up feeling the sun on my face and the warm ocean breeze flowing over my bed, until I lay my head down later that night.
After you have your vision at least thought through we are going to map it, and that will be in the next episode.
